Rainmaking Recommendation # 13: The Question You Need to Ask

“How can I help?”

The interesting thing about this question is the various responses you can elicit.

When asked of friends or family it may bring a closer relationship.

When asked of colleagues it may bring to light issues they are having with which you have the solution.  Or it may result in you being able to make a referral of some of your contacts to them.

When asked of prospective or current clients it may draw out new legal matters with which they may not have known that you or your firm may be able to help.

When you give you receive, in so many ways.  Unfortunately, most people spend their entire lives asking “What’s in it for me?”  If you stop asking that question and ask the one stated above you’d be surprised at all the good that comes back to you.

Rainmaking Recommendations are sent the first and third Wednesdays of the month.  They are bite size tips that, when implemented will cause you to make rain. To learn more about Rainmaking, Goal Setting and Achieving the Life you want as an Attorney please contact Jaimie B. Field, Esq.
